Barbary Macaque Family

During our last trip to Strasbourg, we also decided to visit the area around, e.g. places like Colmar. There are many interesting places between Strasbourg and Colmar too. One of them is Monkeys' Mountain (La Montagne des Singes), a park full of of Barbary Macaque species. We were walking the path when we noticed a couple of monkeys taking care of their baby. They were in the woods, quite far in the distance, luckily with 300mm focal length I managed to capture this amazing scene! :-) We definitely can recommend this place, if happen to be in Strasbourg area.

Photo details: Nikon D800; 28-300mm f3.5-5.6; 1/125 sec at f/5.6; ISO 4000.
